Love is when I write poems about you, about us and you ask me to read them to you. You ask me again, this time with a slower pace, and then again.

And when it’s done, you want me to read it once again and we both laugh.

Love is when things keep you busy all day long and I stare at the phone for your call, but you don’t. You call me at around 2 in the morning and I get mad.

Love is when you say no to the road trips your friends ask you to come. The reason, you say, is because they go with their girlfriends and I’m not there with you.

I cry silently, cursing the distance and telling you you’re an asshole.

Love is when I have beautiful dreams about us and you’re the first person I want to call, to tell everything that has happened, to tell me how much I’ve missed you, but I don’t. I know you’re busy right now, with other people. I wait for you to call me, but I don’t mention the dream. You have better adventures to discuss with me, things you won’t tell anybody else.

Love is when you the exact amount of craziness that I’m capable of and you warn me against it. When I make those mistakes, I don’t tell you. I fear that you might turn away and never look back, does not let me. You have your ways to know what’s wrong with me, you make me tell you everything. You believe me. You say, you know it’s not my fault. I feel terrible for misjudging you. You are going to be here. Always.

Love is when we break up a night before and end up calling each other in the morning to wake each other up with sweet kisses and I love yous. Love is when we know that nothing can tear us apart, when we know we’re the perfect match, the right peg in the right hole. TC mark
